Way back in the 90’s (hey if you bought these off the shelves, your probably looking into a 401k program, and getting your prostate checked regularly) Valiant used the full chromium effect as incentive covers ( and incidentally launching the nascent career of one; Joe Quesada ) for a few of its Zero and One issues. Quickly becoming chase books, with Platinum and Error versions skyrocketing in price, these books became both an example of the increase in technology used in comics, and an almost-joke 20 years later,a warning to the gimmicky 90’s comic speculators implosion.

Now the current Valiant Universe is set to unleash Chromium Madness once again, by releasing Variant Chromium covers to the first 5 parts of the Armor Hunters 18 part summer crossover event.  With top talent like Jorge Molina, Mico Suayan, Clayton Crain, Philip Tan and Lewis Larosa contributing the art for these wrap-around chromium bad-boys, fans are definitely in for an eye-popping treat!

Who are the Armor Hunters? A group of warriors and merceneries from deep space, with one goal… to destroy the X-O Manowar armor, and nothing will stop the fro completing their age old mission. Why? That is what we will find out this summer in the Armor Hunters 4 issue mini-series and it’s tie-in companion books. And make no mistake, this fearsome cadre of alien commandos is not only X-O Manowar’s problem, but a game changer to the Valiant Universe at large:

– The Unity Team epxands it’s ranksto deal with the Armor Hunters invasion
– The true origin of the X-O Armor is reveale inthe X-O Manowar crossover issues
– The next phase in Bloodshot’s life, after splitting off from Project Rising Spirit and H.A.R.D. Corps
–  And the return of Generation Zero, the group of escaped Psiot child-revolutionaries, not seen since the Harbinger Wars!

But you have to act now! Let your Local Comic Shop know what Chromius you want. Retailers have to order a certain amount of regular issues of these titles in order  to “unlock” the chance to order the Chromium Variants. So let ’em know early to get an accurate count, because while supplies are robust, they are limited and allocations may be possible.

About Author

Trained by the Four-Color wizard, Hagan, in all things comic-booky, young Robert took to the streets of New York, dragging his large bespectacled head from comic shop to comic shop, absorbing, learning… knowing…. Until a very delayed pubescent spurt in his early thirties when the tumescent lump of comic knowledge burst forth, rupturing into nonsensical rants about Jack Kirby, superhero related tattoos, questionable cosplay activities, worshiping Jim Starlin as a prophet, and courting the young lady working in his local comic shop. Now he is just mad…roaming the streets late at night while walking his dog, plotting and preparing to unleash more comic-booky goodness on an unsuspecting world. He likes bread. The food. He thinks the band is crap. *Hey wanna freak Bob out? Come follow him on twitter (@dyrewolf1218), he's totally new to it and suspects it may be black magic...* - Chuck the editor monkey
